With more than 50 poster entries at the first annual MMRI Symposium on Nov. 9, it was a tight competition, but judges ultimately selected the following winners:

1st Place
Catherine Haslam (Sakamoto) - "The effect of aspect ratio on the mechanical behavior of Li metal in solid-state cells"
Aditya Sundar (Qi/Chandran, ME) - "Screening the mechanical properties of multicomponent BCC refractories"
Megan Trombley (Allison) - "Size Effect on the Ultrasonic Fatigue Behavior of Laser Powder Bed Fusion 316L"

2nd Place
Rajani Bhat (Kuroda Lab, School of Dentistry) - "Role of Peptide-Mimetic Anionic groups in Amphiphilic Copolymers"
Ming-Hsun Lee (Peterson) - "Ex situ Doping on AlxGa2-xO3 with Si-ion Implantation and the Demonstration of Ohmic Contacts Formation"
Geordie Lindemann (Shahani) - "Microstructural stability of a three-phase eutectic examined via 4D X-ray nano-tomography"
Anshul Singhal (Taub) - "Improved extraction of natural fibers for polymer composite applications"

"In my view, the winning posters conveyed a depth of understanding of a materials challenge; they were also particularly successful in advancing new research towards a plausible solution," commented Symposium organizer Ashwin Shahani.

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners!
